I am sorry to read of the passing of Miss Marguerite; please accept my sincere condolences. I pray your family will find comfort in Jesus' promise of the resurrection(Acts 24:15)when he will raise up all those who are now sleeping in death; restoring them back to life on the renewed Paradise earth.-John 5:28,29; Luke 23:43. Until that promise is fulfilled and you are reunited with your loved one again, may Jehovah God comfort and bless your family, during this time of sadness.-Matthew 5:4.

I was saddened to hear that Marguerite had passed away, but what helped bring comfort was to find that the Bible speaks of a time when death will be done away with:

Isa. 25:8, 9: “He will actually swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will certainly wipe the tears from all faces. . . . And in that day one will certainly say: ‘Look! This is our God. We have hoped in him, and he will save us. This is Jehovah. We have hoped in him. Let us be joyful and rejoice in the salvation by him.’”

Also at John 5:28, 29: “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.”

I know you will still experience pain, grief, and sorrow but I hope that these scriptures will bring some measure of comfort to you.
